Wish List

Do you want to make a wish come true for a cat or dog at The Anti-Cruelty Society? You can help by bringing us items on our wish list! Please note that for the health and safety of the animals, we can only accept new and unused toys and fresh, unopened food.

NOTE: Thanks to a special partnership with Hill’s Science Diet, we do not need dry cat or dog food at this time, but we do need many other items.

Below is a list of the various items that we can always use.

For Our Cats & Dogs:

  • “Adopt Me” vests: click here to find online
  • “Adopt Me” bandana: click here to find online
  • New dog toys (hard rubber – especially all size Kong toys)
  • New cat toys (plastic or rubber)
  • Premium brands canned cat and dog food (unopened)
  • Leashes, new or used
